Convertible Sedan
Chassis #: 159663083
Sold for $17,250 at 2013 Bonhams - The Scottsdale Auction.
In 1949, soft-top versions of the Beetle were produced by two German coachbuilders, Hebmüller and Karmann. The Hebmuller was produced through 1952 when the company went out of business. Their version was a two-seater with a long engine deck. Karmann had a long association was Volkswagen and worked with other manufacturers, such as Porsche, DKW, BMW, Ford of German and Opel. Perhaps their most memorable work was the Karmann Ghia which were in production from 1955 to 1974.

The Karmann Cabriolets had seating for four occupants which made them much more appealing to motorists seeking an economical, yet stylish means of transportation. The Karmann cabriolet, for the most part, mirrored the development of the Beetle during its lifespan, both mechanically and in body features. The folding top mechanism maintained its distinctive appearance. When in the lowered position, the top sat on the rear deck, covered with a canvas boot.

In 1971, Volkswagen introduced the Super Beetle. This model featured a MacPherson strut suspension in the front and improved luggage space. The Cabriolet adopted its characteristics and retained them even when the Super Beetle sedans were discontinued after 1974. Even after the German Beetle was discontinued after 1977, production continued, coming to an end on January 10th of 1980 after more than 330,000 Karmann Beetle Cabriolets had been produced.

This example is finished in orange with black upholstery. The odometer displays 78,453 miles.

In 2013, the car was offered for sale at the Bonhams Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $17,250 including buyer's premium.
